Two new events from the cultural program organized around Edmund de Waal’s exhibition “psalm” (May 8th-Sept 29th, 2019)
Venice, 06/06/2019 at 5.00 p.m. at Ateneo Veneto (Sala Tommaseo): Tales of Exile
Venice, 07/06/2019 at 5.00 p.m. at Ateneo Veneto (Aula Magna): Poems of Exile
What is exile? How many forms does it take? Which books in the Library of Exile were most inspiring to the authors? We will hear various stories of exile (with simultaneous Italian translation) from Nigeria, Italy, Austria, Ireland, England… but also Chile, Poland, and the United States. The event starts at 5 PM, and reservations are essential: email@example.com
On June 7, the Library of Exile (in the Aula Magna of the University of Veneto) will host a rich afternoon of readings, with three poets who will alternate with readers from the Casa delle Parole.
Poets will share original and classic texts on exile, ranging through time and between languages; these texts are housed together in the Library of Exile, which for weeks has been welcoming thousands of visitors. The event starts at 5 PM, and reservations are essential: firstname.lastname@example.org
Edmund de Waal torna a Venezia, all’Ateneo Veneto, per dialogare il 6 giugno con cinque scrittori intorno ai temi della sua mostra psalm.
In collaborazione con: Wyndham Campbell Prizes, Casa delle Parole, lineadacqua, Centro Tedesco di Studi Veneziani
